  1. Just saw that on local news. I'm a huge Python fan. So many great lines from Flying Circus and their movies. RIP Terry
  2. Not to be pedantic, but 9.5 strings would be 9 and 1/2 inches thick. It's .0095 and so on.. We call that 5 in the 4th decimal place (.0005) a half thousandth and it represents the thickness of about a sheet of paper sliced 8 times. Can't imagine there being any noticeable difference.
  3. Read The Gospel According To Luke. Steve addresses the issues with Bobby Kimball. and TOTO.
  4. Even Billy and the Boingers wouldn't have him in the band.
  5. All the whiskey I've had and don't think I've ever tasted Absinthe. Gotta put that on my list of things to do.
  6. Duh. I was thinking 2 Half Steps. C is corrct
  7. I would have thought Open E5 two steps down would be Open D5. D and A. Basically a giant power chord tuned real low.
  8. I'm not sure if we are supposed to chime in with our own guitar regrets here? Sometimes I regret that I've never been one of those guys who practices hours a day. I wonder how good I could be or get if I really worked at it? But i like doing things outside the house too much to spend hours inside practicing. Unfortunately you can't do it all. I guess I've always been the type to do a little bit of a bunch of things, rather than a whole lot of a few things. If that makes sense.
  9. It performed great. I left the footswitch at home so I couldn't switch channels in the middle of a song too easy, but that was my stupidity. It has simple controls which I like and you can use your volume on the guitar to control the tone a lot. The Reverb is pretty subtle. If you like a super amount then you might want to use a pedal for that. It's fine for me. After a real gig when I add some pedals and play a wide variety of styles I'll know more. But so far so good.
  10. Thanks for the replies. I've had it on CL and Reverb as Local Pickup. So far nothing. Maybe I'll try the consignment thing. I just think these monster 2x12 combos are not in demand any longer.
  11. They won't know either way because he won't be talking about it on stage. He'll be entertaining everyone with music.
  12. That will be the real test. I'm going to use it at practice tomorrow night then first gig with it on the 24th. I'll let you know.
  13. I was about to say that I only have 3 guitars and two of them are Les Pauls so there's not much to choose from. But then I remembered my recent PRS acquisition. PRS are known for their multiple tone options, but mine only has 2 humbuckers and a three way switch. No coil splitting or push/pull options. Other than the shape it's pretty much a Les Paul. So that leaves my Kokocaster. Basically a clone of Charvel Surfcaster. Has a split humbucker at bridge and lipstick single coil at neck. And it's semi-hollow. I guess those features would make it more versatile than the others. Having said that, I'm still most comfortable playing gigs with my Les Pauls. I think it's to do with their necks.
  14. Thing that really sold me on this one was how good it can sound even at low volume. It's still heavy, but almost 30 lbs lighter than my Carvin which is nice too.
